Our latest V3 update comes in the form of a booking software journey revamp. As the customer journey your customers experience is as important to us as the experience you have, we are continually investing in the front-end of Booking Live software. That is why we are currently rolling out a new improvement in the form of dropdown displays during the booking software journey. These are visible during the first and second stages of the booking software journey; 'choose items' and 'your basket'. This new feature is especially useful for businesses and organisations who have customers booking on to multiple products (activities/courses/classes etc.) across multiple times and dates.
Due to the increased pressure on primary schools to provide before and after school care, we have noticed an influx in the amount of schools using online booking software for education. That is why we have developed Booking Live to process childcare vouchers. Our latest booking software cheat sheet will give you a quick overview of childcare vouchers and will show you how to set them up within your Booking Live system.
We are delighted to announce that we have been selected to be a part of the ALPHA class of 2015 at Web Summit. Described as "where the tech world meets", we couldn't be more excited to be a part of such a great, global community. You may have seen our announcements about this across social media, but we wanted to give you a bit of an insight in to what we have been up to in preparation for the summit.
One of the most popular uses of Booking Live is its course booking software functionality. From resuscitation courses, to climbing and scuba diving courses, it is safe to say Booking Live's course booking software is extremely flexible. To provide you with further insight into how course booking software is used, we have outlined some examples of our clients' businesses below. Although course booking software is used across many industries, we have found it is predominately used by tour and activity providers, educational bodies and health organisations which is why we have chosen to outline how they use Booking Live.
As many businesses will know, hosting an event is much harder than it looks. Often portrayed as a glamorous lifestyle, many people switch their careers to running events but often fall at the first hurdle. Although it is an enjoyable skill for many, running events requires a huge amount of time and dedication - it often even requires you to be in two places at once! That's why more and more businesses are turning to event booking software to help them set-up and manage events in half the time, allowing them to run more events and generate more income. Read on to find out more about how event booking software could help you.
One of the most integral features to businesses' booking success is our booking software calendar display. This enables businesses to display live availability and bookable dates directly on their website.
As part of our continued improvement, we have recently introduced a nifty little booking software feature which we have name Required Resource Products. This booking software feature provides you with the ability to set up requirements within the booking journey. Your customers must meet these requirements through the purchase of an additional resource during the booking process. For example if you are running a motorbike tour, you can set a selection of motorbikes up as Required Resource Products so customers have to pick one in order to complete their booking (see image below).
Over the past 3 months alone, we have employed 5 new staff members. We know the main areas of improvement within Booking Live have been project management and support, which is why we have hand picked the best team members out there to join us.
